About the Course:
Social work as a discipline focuses on theoretical and philosophical positions such as social justice, equality, and empowerment. Whereas these can be described as “philosophies of social work”, we should ask ourselves, “What is our philosophy of social work?” This paper provides a personal interpretation of a personal philosophy of social work, how it was constructed, and why social workers should engage in this exercise. The final goal of this paper is to provide a thoughtful discussion that encourages other social workers to investigate their own philosophy of social work and define what a “philosophy of social work” means to them.
This course is based on the reading-based online article, Developing a Personal and Professional Philosophy to Guide Thought and Practice created by Paul Force-Emery Mackie, MSW, Ph.D.
Publication Date:Spring 2007, Vol. 4, No. 1
